The Rams were going to draft a running back - we knew that after they interviewed a ton of them in the draft process. What we didn't know was that they'd take one with their first pick in the draft. While Darrell Henderson is a threat to Akers' overall workload, they clearly know what they have in Henderson, and drafted Akers early. It seems like Henderson is going to be the lesser part of the timeshare, while Akers is the early-down back and likely to receive goal-line work. There's a chance Henderson has a bigger role than anticipated, which prevents us from trusting Akers as anything more than a high-end RB3.If you're looking for a handcuff to Mark Ingram, Dobbins is your guy. The Ravens apparently had a first-round grade on him in the draft, so selecting him in the second round was a "no brainer," according to them. He's likely to get 8-10 touches per game even with Ingram in the lineup, as the Ravens are not going to give any one running back more than 15-16 touches per game. That limits the upside of Dobbins, as does Lamar Jackson stealing plenty of goal-line touches.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Both in reality and fantasy, Cam Akers is one of the most exciting rookies coming into the league. He enters an offense that desperately needs a new face at the RB position and I expect Akers to be that guy. Due to COVID, it may take a few weeks, but Akers should finish the season as the clear RB1 on the Rams and has top-24 fantasy potential as well.Dobbins finds himself in one of the most lethal backfields in the NFL. The only problem is, it's also one of the most crowded backfields in the NFL. Between Lamar Jackson running the football and Mark Ingram getting his fair share of touches, it's hard to envision Dobbins having a major role as a rookie. That being said, if anything were to Ingram, Dobbins would be an automatic start every single week.
Brandon Funston

My bet for rookie RB to see most touches - skills to be a featured back (with a little pass game improvement), and team clearly lacks confidence in D. Henderson in that role 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Rams may have as many as four members in their RBBC, Akers is the early favorite to be the lead back in one of the most intriguing timeshare situations in the NFL. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Akers was a 5-star HS recruit, played behind one of the worst O-Lines in the country at FSU and still put up 1,100 and 8 his freshman year. He can rush, pass, and block, is durable, and was a 2nd round pick by a team that had just spent a 3rd round pick on a RB the year prior. Plus, even in a down year last season, Gurley put up 14 TDs in that offense. Akers is a RB2 with high-end RB1 upside. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This is one of the most puzzling selections to me in the entire draft. While I wasn't a huge Akers fan heading into the draft, I believed he could have value as a pass-catching back or a player that would thrive being moved out into space. Darrell Henderson is still there and could be the 1st/2nd down back, while Akers assumes the 3rd down work. However, this OL is still horrendous and is not going to help these RBs at all. This could be a David Montgomery type selection in year one, where the talent level is there, but the OL just simply can't hold up. Akers is a very risky pick in Dynasty leagues.Dobbins may see enough work this season to have standalone value, but he has unspeakable upside if something happens to Mark Ingram. If that happens, we could see Dobbins finish within the top-5 RBs for fantasy football.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Cam Akers has the easiest path to a featured role among these rookie RBs in terms of proven competition in their backfield. Akers also happens to be a baller. @Ihartitz 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Despite being 7th in total yards, the Rams somehow managed to give only 1500 of them to their RBs. While that's less than ideal, there is room for growth. There are rumblings that the Rams want to do more on the ground and with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown proving underwhelming to this point, it's entirely possible that by halfway through the season, this is Cam Akers's backfield. Given the huge TD and fantasy point upside that role has previously held, a return to form for the Rams could make the young rookie a fantasy stud. Be very aware that he'll start the season slowly but he could rumble home with a head of steam if things fall his way.JK Dobbins is clearly an excellent long-term prospect but what does he look like for 2020? It's starting to look like he'll be very much the backup in the Baltimore super-committee with Mark Ingram leading the way and Gus the Bus and Justice Hill (a great boy band name) getting a heap of involvement too. Dobbins clearly has plenty of upside if he can wrestle away the lead role but with Covid impacting preparations, that looks increasingly unlikely for now. He'll continue dropping down my rankings well into the RB3s until there's a good reason to move him up.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 Baltimore RBs had 393 rushing attempts last year. Ingram had 202. The clear loser is Gus Edwards and his 133 attempts, as well as 3rd, now 4th? String Justice Hill. Dobbins is in line for a 150 touch year. Not awesome, but will stay provide low end RB2/RB3 numbers in year 1.
